U.S. Supreme Court On Cellphone Searches By Law Enforcement
In a collision of the law and technology, the U.S. Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear arguments stemming from two cases, one in California, about whether police should be able to conduct warrantless searches of cellphone contents after an arrest. Law enforcement officials say it helps to solve crimes. Civil libertarians and privacy advocates say it violates the 4th amendment's ban on unreasonable searches and seizures. Fifty percent of Americans now carry smartphones loaded with personal data such as text messages, addresses and photos.

He grew up in San Leandro during the 1970's the only African American student in his high school class of three hundred fifty. As a kid, he weathered physical abuse from his father, discrimination by local police, and efforts by a racist landlord to evict his family from their apartment.

Copeland sat down with Scott Shafer to talk about the show, his comedy, and life on the outside looking in.
